This site is the home of my 2018 U.S. History II course. On it you will find a number of student’s research essays reflecting their genuine historical research governing a variety of different chronological periods and fields within the larger branch of American history.  Each of these essays is the product of synthesis, pushing the student to not only understand the historical contexts of the era being studied, but the details associated with the event/idea/person that bring the topic to life in clear and cogent understanding.
